England 0-0 Italy: Three Lions still in search of first Nations League win; Wales 1-1 Belgium: Johnson strike late to deny Tielemans & Red Devils three points

England and Italy settled for a goalless draw in their third group match of the 2022/2023 UEFA Nations League campaign.

Both teams made several changes to their squad but there was nothing to separate the sides in terms of goalscoring action, as proceedings at the Molineux ended in a 0-0 stalemate.

The result leaves the Three Lions without a victory in the UNL and with just two points from their opening three matches in their group.

In our second feature game of the evening, Belgium made it back-to-back wins in the UEFA Nations League by beating a Gareth Bale led Wales 1-0. The Cymru thought they had gone ahead in the fifth minute but Ethan Ampadu’s effort was chalked off due to offside in the build-up.

The visitors soon took the lead through Youri Tielemans in the 51st minute but Brennan Johnson levelled proceedings for the Cymru in the 87th minute, as both sides settled for a point apiece.
